Encouraging achievement by junior Ikan Bilises in Leg 1 of SportExcel

The 2017 SportExcel Milo-NSC-ASUM Junior Swimming Circuit Leg 1 has just ended yesterday after a 2-day exciting and competitive performance by our swimmers at Pusat Akuatik Darul Ehsan, Shah Alam. This event has attracted more than 1,000 swimmers from various clubs around Malaysia. For our own Team IBSC alone, we achieved a record registration of 127 young and talented swimmers eager to compete.

As many of our senior swimmers have surpassed the eligible age, our sprouting juniors are left to fend for the club. Young as they may be but their effort has paid off well outperforming our initial expectation as IBSC concluded the swim meet with 4 golds, 13 silvers and 9 bronze to accumulate 2064.5 points to rank 2nd behind PADE Supershark, who won with a slim margin of 18.5 points, given up by IB in some unexpected DQs.

Nevertheless, IB is proud with the collaborated achievements brought in by medalists and swimmers. Congrats to all our points contributors as well as swimmers who have improved by leaps and bounds.

Top performer was Steve Khiew, who bagged 3 gold medals in 50 back, 100 back, 100 free and a bronze to amassed 174 points in total. The top junior girl was Liew Xiao Rou who delivered 167 points with her collection of 4 bronze. Thanks to all coaches involved in bringing the awesome results.

See table below for the points earners.

Special thanks to the Assistant Team Manager, En. Nizarudin, our Chaperones, Choi Ling and Lily, and also all the parents who are cooperative in making this a successful outing. I wish all the best to IBSC swimmers in the 2nd leg of SportExcel in Malacca and believe IBSC can retain the overall champion this year.
